FAIR WARNING by Michael Connelly: The hero of The Poet and The Scarecrow is back in the new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author (and my favorite!) Michael Connelly. Jack McEvoy, the journalist who never backs down, tracks a serial killer who has been operating completely under the radar–until now.
DEAD LAND by Sara Paretsky: V.I. Warshawski Novels, Book 20. Chicago’s legendary detective, V.I. Warshawski, knows her city’s rotten underbelly better than most, but she’s unable to avoid it when her goddaughter drags her into a fight over lakefront land use in this propulsive novel.
SEEING DARKNESS by Heather Graham: Krewe of Hunters, Book 30. When a terrifying past-life regression during a girls’ weekend in Salem reveals a local politician’s sinister nature, FBI Krewe of Hunters special agent Jon Dickson teams up with an apprehensive witness to stop a twisted serial killer.
THESE WOMEN by Ivy Pochoda: From the award-winning author of Wonder Valley and Visitation Street comes a serial killer story like you’ve never seen before—a literary thriller of female empowerment and social change.
THREE HOURS IN PARIS by Cara Black: In June of 1940, when Paris fell to the Nazis, Hitler spent a total of three hours in the City of Light—abruptly leaving, never to return. To this day, no one knows why. The New York Times bestselling author of the Aimée Leduc investigations reimagines history in her masterful, pulse-pounding spy thriller.
A BAD DAY FOR SUNSHINE by Darynda Jones: Sunshine Vicram Series, Book 1. New York Times bestselling author Darynda Jones is back with the first novel in the brand-new snarky, sassy, wickedly fun thriller, and the forecast looks anything but sunny.
THIS IS HOW I LIED by Heather Gudenkauf: A pregnant detective, still haunted by the cold case murder of her best friend decades earlier is forced to relive the past and finally understand what happened when new evidence comes to light and the case is reopened.
BLACK FLAG by David Ricciardi: Jake Keller Series, Book 3. CIA officer Jake Keller faces stakes that are very high and very personal in the latest electrifying thriller from the author of Rogue Strike. After years of relative calm, piracy has returned to the high sea. As the threats close in from all sides, Jake finds himself faced with a familiar choice: back off, or go on the offensive.
TAKE ME APART by Sara Sligar: A seductive, twisting tale of psychological suspense, Take Me Apart draws readers into the lives of two darkly magnetic young women pinned down by secrets and lies. Sara Sligar’s electrifying debut is a chilling, thought-provoking take on art, illness, and power, from a spellbinding new voice in literary suspense.
CROSS OF FIRE by David Gilman: Master of War, Book 6. Winter, 1362. After years of successful campaigning in France, Thomas Blackstone, a common archer knighted at Crécy, has rised to become Edward III’s Master of War. But the title is as much a curse as a blessing; a group of trained killers, burning with vengeance, draw ever-closer.
